Teen Drivers Education and Training
Students need both Knowledge (classroom) and Behind-the-Wheel to receive a license.
Knowledge Portion (Classroom)
Our Knowledge curriculum has been approved by the Department of Education to be a comprehensive overview for Virginia drivers. During the course the students will learn a variety of different concepts, techniques, and strategies to help minimize risk. This 30 hour online/pencil and paper course is offered with rolling enrollment for $175. You can register over the phone or in person.
In addition to completing the Knowledge portion, students will need to complete In-Car (Behind-the-Wheel) portion of Driver’s Ed and successfully pass the road skills examination before we can issue them a provisional driver’s license. Parents will have to certify that the student has completed 45 hours of practice driving, 15 of which were at night.
Behind-the-Wheel consists of seven lessons. As mandated by state law, each lesson consists of 50 minutes of drive time and 50 minutes of observation time for each student. Sessions are conducted in a specially equipped DMV certified Driver’s Ed vehicle and include a combination of back roads, city, and highway driving. We administer the DMV road skills examination on the 7th lesson, and if the student passes and all the other requirements are met, we issue the student’s provisional driver’s license. The price is $275. You can register online or over the phone.
